Drop in Drawing
The gallery will open at 10.30am on Saturday 18 May, with a special Drop In Drawing centre at reception, where you can pick up a drawing board and chose paper size and dry materials and pick your spot around the galleries, or on the site to draw and respond.

What Is Drawing?
We have also invited artist and lecturer Brian Fay to present an introductory lecture on drawing. This lecture will appeal to adults and second level students with an interest in art and in drawing.
Taking place on Saturday 18 May at 12.00noon, Fay will identify some of the challenges in attempting to define drawing, and will include references to artists and artworks including many in the Collection of the Irish Museum of Modern Art, like Kathy Prendergast, Tom Molloy, Alice Maher, Michael Craig Martin, Sol LeWitt, André Masson and Brian O'Doherty.
